Hey beautiful girls,
Today I am going to review Maybelline Lip Liner in the shade Velvet Beige. This is my first lip liner. I just chose this one randomly, but it turned out to be a hit for me. Let us move on to the review.
I wanted to get a lip liner for my farewell. So I searched for something affordable yet good. Then came this lip liner, as I like Maybelline products. I had two options, either Velvet Beige or Choco Pop. Since I have an allergy towards browns, I decided to go for this one. This lip liner is an ordinary pencil liner.
Packaging: It comes with a transparent plastic cap. These pencils have color oriented packaging, so even if you have more than one, you will find it easy to identify. The packaging is pretty smart. Not attractive, not worse either. It is not retractable, so you need to sharp them, which leads to more product wastage.
Texture: The lip liner is creamy, but gives a matte look and somewhat well pigmented. One swipe gives you the original color. It glides on lips very smoothly, but you definitely need to exfoliate and moisturize your lips before. Or else, it will leave your lips dry. They are not moisturizing. But creamy and smooth enough to glide on lips without being a headache.
Color: Now coming to the main part. Velvet Beige is an awesome nude pink shade with shimmers. Not so nude that would wash out dusky beauties The shimmers are not so obvious but gives a healthy look to lips. It make lips look more beautiful and attractive. If not exfoliated properly and moisturized it will surely accentuate fine lines and make your lips look ugly. It is a beautiful color that will suit all complexions, fair-dusky. When I swatched it on my sister who is dusky, it showed up so neutral. Me being wheatish , it showed up as a pure pink color. It definitely controls bleeding of lipsticks and yes, it makes lipstick stay longer. If used alone, it stays for 3-4 hrs, leaving a very beautiful mild pink tint on lips.
- Easily available
- Nice pigmentation
- Smooth texture
- Doesn’t dry lips (not moisturizing either)
- Pretty shade that suits all complexions
- Controls bleeding of lipsticks
- Decent staying power

- Not retractable and thus leads to product wastage
Do I Recommend?:
Yes, If you are in search of an affordable yet good lip liner, then go ahead for this range. A beautiful color that would look good on everyone, with a smooth texture and decent staying power.
Would I Repurchase?:
May be, for the shade.
